For all you creative dessert makers, Totnes10 are setting a special local food competition for the Forking Local Food Festival.
Cake or dessert made with minimum 75% local ingredients, that is ingredients that have been produced within 30 miles of Totnes, so that means flour and sugar are out unless in very small quantities!
Example of ingredients that can be sourced locally and seasonally: Eggs, Butter, Cream, Milk, Honey, Apples, Pear, Blackberries, Carrots, Beetroot, Mint, Lavender, Rosemary
Bring your sweet creation to the to the festival's herbal tea stall on Vire Island along with a list on the ingredients. We'll be judging (& scoffing) around 3.30pm so dishes will need to be ok not refrigerated for an hour or two.
There will be a prize for the winner and runners up will receive a warm glow of satisfaction and a big thank you from the festival team.
